The India U19 team has registered a place in the final of the World Cup after beating arch-rivals Pakistan by 10 wickets.

India romped Pakistan in Potchefstroom riding on Yashasvi Jaiswal’s unbeaten 105 in the chase of 173. Pakistan after batting first were bowled out for 172.

Captain and wicket-keeper batsman Rohail Nazir was the top-scorer for Pakistan with 62 while opener Haider Ali scored 56. Sushant Mishra scalped a three-for for India while Kartik Tyagi and Ravi Bishnoi picked a couple of wickets apiece.

India will either play New Zealand or Bangladesh in the final slated to take place in Potchefstroom on Sunday. This would be India’s third final on the trot. They lost to West Indies in 2016 but defeated Australia in 2018 to lift the cup.
